The first true update of Fortnite Season 10 is coming tomorrow morning, and the community is eagerly anticipating what it will bring. Will Epic finally address the BRUTE?
The first patch of Fortnite Season X is only hours away. Will we be getting a new item or weapon? Will the map change at all? Will Epic finally nerf the mech?
We'll have to wait and see, but here's what will likely happen when tomorrow's update goes live.
Patch v10.10 is almost here!— Fortnite (@FortniteGame) August 12, 2019
Downtime begins tomorrow, August 13 at 4 AM ET (0800 UTC).
Epic has been firm on their stance about the BRUTE. The fact that the Fortnite community got #vaultthemech trending globally over the weekend didn't seem to do much to persuade the team to remove it.
Epic has doubled and tripled down on the BRUTE in Fortnite. They'll be adding a laser to it so you can see where it's shooting, but that's probably all they're going to do. If we're lucky, the'll nerf the health by one or two hundred as well.
To paraphrase SypherPK, "Putting a laser on the BRUTE is like getting in the ring with Mike Tyson and saying that he's going to tell you before he punches you in the face. There's nothing you can do about it whether you know it's coming or not."

A Rift Zone at Mega Mall is likely as well, transitioning the area back to Retail Row - presumably.
There's also a chance that we see this location changed to a completely new one like Epic did with Tilted Town, although that's probably the less likely of the two possibilities.
All we can hope is that this isn't another no-building or low-gravity zone. Please, Epic, just give us one good thing this season.
